Day onsen at Gero Onsen


I would be coming down from Takayama early in the morning and will be staying at Nagoya in the evening. I'm thinking of stopping by at Gero Onsen to do some onsen before i head on to Nagoya.

May I ask if that sounds like a do-able side trip?

Can I leave my luggage at the Gero train station? Is there a locker there?

Is there a recommended place(hotel/ public onsen) to go onsen?

Should I bring my own towels?

I heard that some places allow bathing suit? or will I be in my birthday suit(naked)?

Any help is appreciated.

There are coin lockers in Gero rail station.


Suimeikan opens its onsens (including 3 private ones) to daytime visitors with the exception of Shimodome.

Also, there are public baths Shirasagi no Yu (opened in 1926 but only with inner bath): http://www.gero.jp/museum/sirasagi.html

and Kurgarten with rotemburo: http://www.gero.jp/museum/roten.html

No bathing suits are allowed.
